For such PWM regulators, add the property to tell that voltage change
is exponential and having fixed delay for any level of change.

This patch is continuation of discussion on patch
regulator: pwm: Fix regulator ramp delay for continuous mode
where is it discussed to have separate property for PWM which has
exponential voltage transition.
Changes from V1:
- Pass the flag to tell that voltage ramp is exponential instead of

you had in v1, but not PWM specific.
